Addressing the Yatra gathring, Dr Uma Shanker Pandey National secretary, said that it is in the DNA of the Hindu Mahasaba, RSS and BJP to ditch the people after promising sky. When Mahatma Gandhi gave the slogan of “Angrezoo Bharat Choro”, it was the Hindu Mahasaba, advising the people not to join the mission for freedom. The BJP exploited the sentiment of the youth for vote bank politics and then forgot to give them anything in return including the employment. In place of giving more employment, this government has discontinued the daily wagers and NYCs. We demand permanent employment for these sections and also urge the government to scrap the new recruitment policy.

Addressing the gathering Pranav Shagotra President J&K PYC, strongly condemned the negligent and callous  attitude of the government in  addressing the issue of NYCs, which has resulted in the death of a NYC activist  (Raj Kumar) and many others are in critical condition at the venue of hunger strike at Partab  Park, Srinagar. He demanded proper compensation to the family of the NYC activist who died during the current hunger strike at Srinagar.

He further added that the present dispensation has exploited the youth for votes but have failed to keep their pre poll promises. He said that BJP has made a complete sell out for power and this is the worst kind of political cheating, especially with people of Jammu.

Tomorrow , the “Yuva Akrosh Yatra” will move to the twin  border districts of Rajouri and Poonch.

Senior Congress leaders Manjeet Singh Jatt, Neeraj Gupta, PCC Secretaries, Sanjeev Panda were also present on the occasion.
